Overview

A macabre mash-up of the children’s classic Pat the Bunny and the present-day zombie phenomenon, with the tactile features of the original book revoltingly re-imagined for an adult audience.

In the hemorrhagic vein of other zombie parodies, Pat the Zombie presents trusting toddler Judy playing peek-a-boo with a putrefying Paul. Grownup fans of Pat the Bunny (seven million of them) will find their favorite touch-and-feel features disturbingly re-created: Judy reaches for Zombie’s decaying jaw instead of daddy’s cheek; Paul caresses Mummy’s empty eye socket instead of her wedding ring. Ximm’s twisted wit, Soofi’s sick artistic sensibility, and clever packaging that mimics the original book will bring the undead lurchingly to life in this camp popculture romp.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

One way or another, this mock children's book will keep you up late. "Here are Paul and Judy," it begins. "They can survive lots of things. You can survive lots of things too...but probably won't. Judy can gut the zombie. Now YOU gut the zombie." If this spoof zombie research doesn't grab you, Judy's Sleepytime Survival Guide will. Ghoulish fun for the brave-hearted.

    This is a cute little spoof of the old "Pat the Bunny"

    This is a cute little spoof of the old "Pat the Bunny" children's book. The spoof is intended for adults.

    It is a short book, pages and story wise.

    There are little sight and tough gags throughout allowing reminiscing and play.

    Overall, a fun read/spoof!

    touchy feely zombies

    IF you like spoofs AND zombies, then you'll get a blast from this one.

    It is just as touchy-feely at the original book that it is based on.

    And, includes a mini-story of the cute-turned-zombie bunny.
